"A Classic Vocalist with a Stellar Repertoire"
Bay area jazz vocalist Laurel Cole breathes new life into the wonderful songs of the 30's, 40's and 50's with a warm, rich alto that restores those classic melodies and lyrics to their original style so often lost in many of today's interpretations. Whether caressing a ballad or torch song, lilting a sultry bossa, or swinging a toe-tapping tune, Laurel draws musical gems from her vast and diverse repertoire, all the while exuding an aura of warmth, sophistication and elegance
From a young age this consummate singer and entertainer has brought to the stage a repertoire of music that cannot be matched. Her first memorable recording was at the age of 4 and it fueled her desire through college where she starred on stage in many musical productions. From her roots in the City By The Bay to her current home in Beautiful Half Moon Bay, Laurel has enjoyed a career as a much lauded performer whose taste, charm and talent always shine.
Laurel presents dynamic vocal interpretations that touches the heart with musical memories. From the great big band swing and Latin hits of the 40's & 50's or lush, beautiful ballads it is always something special to be a part of. She is at home as a chanteuse in a small lounge but is or as a sparkling lead vocalist in big band or combo setting.
